Synopsis

Shifting between the cosmopolitan city of London and the ghostly back-drop of war-torn Kashmir, a beautiful valley in northern India and site of the world's most militarised territorial dispute, Liyana struggles to retrieve the lost White House of her childhood. No longer the colourful playground of the past, Kashmir decays with conflict while the rest of the world progresses forward at a dizzying pace. With the loss of childhood innocence comes the growing pains of a divided world and Liyana's struggle to reaffirm harmony. The White House is a story of love, loss and longing - a modern day odyssey that explores the challenge of finding 'home' in the twenty first century.

 


 

Shama Naqushbandi was born in London in 1983 to parents of Kashmiri heritage. After graduating from Clare College, Cambridge University, she joined one of the world's premier international law firms and has since been working in the City. The White House is her first book and won 'Best Novel' in the Brit Writers' Awards 2012.
